Everyone has a handful of makeup brands they know and love, but do you know what the official top-ranked cosmetics brand in the world is? Hint: the brand is known for its long-lasting (indestructible) liquid lipstick, obsession-worthy concealer and an iconic mascara you’ve probably relied on since day one. Any guesses?


The answer: Maybelline New York. Ever since 2017, the brand has ranked highest among both drugstore and prestige color cosmetics brands. This feat is as major as it gets, but we’re not surprised in the slightest. If you haven’t experienced the brand’s cult-classic products before, we rounded up a few of our favorites, ahead.
